We went on a family trip to Einsteins to send the kids off...

Keira Turns 3!!!!

Happy birthday to my spunky little fireball!



If only we could all enjoy life as much as 3 year olds...





Keira was spoiled with some amazing gifts from our family and friends!


Look it's a glimpse into the future...





I love her new #girlboss shirt - she knows how to rock it.



She initially wanted icecream but switched to a cake last minute.



She had a bit of everything on her cake...




Post birthday weekend and some time with Grammy she was so tired we couldn't wake her. B tried vacuuming to wake her but she just covered her ears and slept on.


Today Keira and I had a mommy and K date and we went to see Ice Age Collision Course.


She had a great time and tried to take a picture with the Troll movie add but was too short. 


Now time for the weekend!!!

Gen Con

Summer has been going by so quickly...

We enjoyed some peaches at the farmers market.


Keira has the craziest hair...


She got some new tennis shoes and looks so big now!


Chase went on his first trip without B and I!  He went to Gen Con with Pops and G.


He said it was the best vacation ever. 


They had steampunk costumes for the parade. 




We all missed Chase and Keira was so happy today when he got home.

Norco Tournament

Chase decided to participate in the Norco Tournament last minute this year.


All the kiddos did great. I am amazed how they manage under such pressure. 


He sparred for the first
time in a competition. 


Thanks to Chase's amazing coaches at Omniform for all their help and support.

Movies and a Stripe

We have been on a movie streak. We caught the new Independence Day movie, Tarzan, and the Secret Life of Pets. 

Chase is the best movie buddy!


Keira enjoyed her second movie ever...



But the most exciting event was Chase getting his Black Stripe!!!  He also received an award for having the highest score on his written test and for being runner up for highest tester!  He is well on his way to Black Belt. So proud of him!

Mountain Fun

We have been enjoying our break from city living. 


We celebrated a birthday - Happy Birthday Pearl!


Stark believes he is both a mountain dog and a lap dog. 


The Galaxy S7 Edge underwater camera worked really well.  It was a hoot.



We had a blast at the Rec Center pool. 











Lovely river view. 


Fourth of July Sparkler fun!  I love Fireworks. 



She is even Sassy when doing the most basic of activities haha.


Keira was nervous about the loud noises from some of the fireworks we did but thankfully she had Chase to snuggle. 




We even got in some water balloon fun!  The packs that fill quickly are worth every penny. 


Action shot of Chase dodging a balloon.






Other then the bugs the trip has been delightful.
